Viscous damper in mechanical translational systems
The Translational Damper block represents an ideal mechanical translational viscous damper, described with the following equations:
|F||Force transmitted through the damper|
|D||Damping (viscous friction) coefficient|
|vR,vC||Absolute velocities of terminals R and C, respectively|
The block positive direction is from port R to port C. This means that the force is positive if it acts in the direction from R to C.
The block has the following ports:
